OMG, it’s February! And that means…I’ve forgotten to launch Ask Me Anything! on time! Oh the horror! And to judge by the calamitous chirping of crickets, clearly you were all deeply missing this wonderful twice-annual feature. Oh well…on with the show. Drop questions into comments here, or e-mail them to me, or tweet them at me, or scrawl them on a piece of paper and chuck them at me out the window of your car. All questions welcome, and all will be answered! (Slowly, as is typical for me, but they WILL be answered!)
